Update in regards to the Covid-19 effect on 25manna 2021

The organising clubs Täby OK, Attunda OK and Sundbybergs IK continue their efforts on preparing and focusing on the planning and execution of hosting the 25manna relay and the middle distance event on 9th and 10th October. The currently on-going pandemic due to Covid-19 is, of course, affecting all facets of our planning efforts, and the organisers continue to monitor the pandemic closely.

The Swedish government has together with the Swedish Public Health authority jointly presented a five-step plan for Sweden’s return to “normal”. The five-step plan includes allowing increased numbers of competitors for running events and competitions during the summer and autumn as long as the spread of Covid-19 decreases and the health care systems have the ability to properly care for Covid-19 patients. Unfortunately there is no set date when a competition and orienteering event such as 25manna relay will be allowed to happen as planned.

The organisers along with the 25manna association joint goal remains to be able to host the competition, but this requires permissions from multiple authorities at the appropriate check-points at the planning stages, in addition to take the financial risks associated with planning such a large event for both participating clubs and the organisers. We continue to monitor the pandemic closely and aim to take a decision in July whether or not to host the competitions. The decision may be delayed even further depending on the spread of the disease and the government decisions in regards to the 5-step plan. By delaying the final decision it is our hope that the positive trend will continue thus allowing the organisers to host the competition.

Therefore, the organizers urge any club planning for the weekend in terms of booking lodging and travel does so in such contracts that are non-binding financially.

The preparations for 25manna 2021

The organising clubs Täby OK, Attunda OK and Sundbybergs IK are in the midst of preparing and focusing on the planning and execution of hosting the 25manna relay and the middle distance event on 9th and 10th October. The currently on-going pandemic due to Covid-19 is, of course, affecting all facets of our planning efforts, and the organisers continue to monitor the pandemic closely.

The 25manna relay of 2021 is expected to be the 47th running of the 25manna relay since the 2020 event was cancelled. The 25manna relay has a long history of crowning the world’s best orienteering club and we hope that in 2021 that we again can crown the “world’s best club”.

As part of our preparations, we intend to soon publish the preliminary invitation for the 25manna relay, the 25manna middle distance competition and the Swedish League event.

The on-going pandemic affects all aspects of our lives, and the sport of orienteering is severely limited currently. The unknown factors of how the pandemic will continue to develop, and the delays of vaccine distribution are obvious factors that may hinder our planning efforts to host the 25manna relay weekend as we plan.

The organisers are in close co-operation with the 25manna association, the Stockholm Orienteering Federation (StOF) and the Swedish Orienteering Federation (SOFT) and continuously monitoring the authorities restrictions how to limit the spread of Covid-19. At the same time, we also need to keep in mind our own needs as organising clubs and the needs of the participating clubs who also need to plan for the 25manna relay weekend.

It is our intentions to finalize the decision whether or not 25manna 2021 will be held at the end of June. Therefore, the organizers urge any club planning for the weekend in terms of booking lodging and travel are non-binding financially.
